Drones are a perfect example of the most advanced modern technology that is widely used by businesses all over the world. While they originate from the military’s efforts, modern drones are widely used in civilian life nowadays.

Did you know, drones are not a “new” technology?  Officially drones were introduced in the 1900s with the aim to invent a device that may fly in extreme conditions with no danger for pilots.

Their fields of application are limitless nowadays. While police and media use drones to collect relevant data, more and more industries discover that they provide innovative solutions for everyday issues.

Farmers use them to collect information about crops, companies like Amazon have begun to use drones for delivery services and many others explore their potential for more efficient logistics. 

Many companies in the Australian market have already started to introduce innovative solutions based on opportunities provided by drones.

Our ecosystem revolves around different companies and organisations that do great work in their industries with drone technology. Here are five organisations that are innovating in the world with drones.
